CPL imports may face Chinese anti-dumping probe
Aug '10
Caprolactam imports are rising and being dumped in the Chinese markets and this has led Shijiazhuang Chemical Fiber Co Ltd., which accounts for nearly one-third of China's capacity of caprolactam to cutback production.

Recently, the Ministry of Commerce has decided to launch anti-dumping investigation against caprolactam imports from the EU and the United States and is the second anti-dumping investigation on caprolactam imports initiated by China.

Shijiazhuang Chemical Fiber Co and a few others have submitted applications for initiating anti-dumping investigations to the Ministry of Commerce in accordance with relevant requirements of anti-dumping regulation in China.

Caprolactam is one of the important organic chemical raw materials, mainly used in production of nylon 6 chips. The manufacturers are mainly based in the European Union, the United States, Japan, Korea and other countries and regions.

China's import dependence is always above 60 percent. As of the end of 2009, world's caprolactam capacity had reached 4.95 million tons, and China's capacity touched 530,000 tons, of which nearly one third comes from Shijiazhuang Chemical Fiber Co.

China imposed anti-dumping measures against caprolactam imports from Japan, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and Russia from June 2003 to June 2008. During those years, Shijiazhuang achieved profits for three years through promoting technological innovation.

China's anti-dumping measures expired in June 2008 and the dumping situation of caprolactam imports showed resurgence and Shijiazhuang Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. stopped all production from November 2008 to April 2009.

Chinese production of caprolactam is rising after introduction of technology in recent years, and domestic production capacity will reach 1.41 million tons / year in the future with a number of new devices coming on stream.
